There May be Pests in My Building – What Should I Do?
The key to keeping your building pest-free is quick action. While keeping your apartment clean, garbage out of common areas and food put away goes a long way, there is always the possibility of a mouse finding its way inside in the winter or a new neighbor carrying in a bug from a prior rental—and those pests can spread rapidly if they’re not managed aggressively. Too often, renters are hesitant to take a pest problem to management for fear that they’ll be blamed, but that’s always a mistake. A problem that could be easily managed can spiral into a major headache for everyone concerned if it’s not addressed promptly, so err on the side of contacting management at the first sign of trouble.
